    Okay, sometimes the site asks for a subscription. Here's an excerpt:

    A British government agency has accused a trio of top Australian public health advocates, including prominent anti-smoking campaigner Simon Chapman, of putting a “series of factual errors” to a parliamentary inquiry into vaping and the use of e-cigarettes, which are effectively illegal in Australia.

    Public Health England, an arm of the British Health Department, has written to a Senate inquiry into electronic cigarettes “to correct” arguments made by professors Chapman, Becky Freeman and Maurice Swanson that it believes misrepresent the evidence around the use of e-cigarettes, which are legal and widely used in England, and Britain’s policy towards them.

    Far from being “completely different” from the rest of the European Union, which has permitted regulated use of e-cigarettes since 2014, Britain “operates the same detailed approach”.

    “On the contrary, the effect of (European regulation) has been to reverse the ban on e-cigarettes in several EU member states, including Finland,” the agency said.

    The agency defended a widely cited 2015 British study that claimed smoking e-cigarettes was 95 per cent less harmful than smoking tobacco (because e-cigarettes do not contain carcinogenic tobacco) against claims the authors were influenced by tobacco industry funding.

    “The claim is false. Correction or retraction has been received where the claim has been made (in UK media),” it said.

    Mate its a joke here these days. All the Do Gooder groups which are far from good, mostly full of radical mung bean types that start off as rent a crowd protestors, but end up either as parts of political groups or some so called "expert" that the media latches on to. But people in general these days are so damn dumb they believe the crap they see and read in or on the media that its as if now here people are scared to be seen vaping. You could play spot the vaper here, like spotting a rare exotic animal.
